Yes, D1 had this. It may be a good idea to ask for a referral to a specialist.

DD2 is nearly 10 weeks. We went to the out of hours Dr yesterday as she was out of sorts. She was diagnosed with a virus. The Paed who examined her commented that her Fontanelle was almost closed & said that this was very unusual.
She also has quite a small head. This was commented on at our 20 week scan, but never followed up.
She's also had 3 little episodes of what looked like petit mals. The Paed at A&E thought that they sounded like breath holding episodes.
Has anyone experienced an early closing Fontanelle?
